Red Sox Moms – 2015

Wooooohooo! Just got an email from The Red Sox Moms team and they asked me to come back.

My family and I had so much fun bringing you all the Red Sox awesomeness last year.

Can’t wait to bring it in 2015! #RedSoxMoms

TOMS shoes on SALE at zulily!

So we are snowed in, again!

I am in the house with three kids and a new puppy.  The kids are being remarkably good. Me, on the other hand, I’m going a bit bonkers. I don’t like the winter, never have. I tolerate it because this is where my family is and this is where we have chosen to live. I don’t complain (too much) but I’ve had enough.

I do little things around here to make it a bit more bearable. Like margaritas on a Sunday night, or letting the kids all have a sleepover in one room. I have also started to wear my black sparkly Toms around the house. Because they MAKE ME HAPPY.

You know what else makes me happy? A sale!

Happy Presidents Day or Katy Perry Day. Whichever.

My middle brought home some papers in her folder the other day. As elementary schoolers have a habit of doing. The amount of paper these kids bring home is suffocating. It’s everywhere. Some get hung up, some get put in the hanging file on the wall, some ends up on my desk. There is paper the children have manipulated in some way on every surface of my house.

But this one was special. I saw it and knew you would love it.

Happy Presidents Day or Katy Perry Day. Whichever.

The caption says “He didn’t go to school for a long time.”

I asked her very cheekily if this was George Washington or Katy Perry.

She burst out laughing. “Oh my gosh mama it does sort of look like her. I didn’t mean for it too.”

In her defense we did just watch the Superbowl halftime show two days prior to this illustration. Had there been a dancing shark in the picture too I would have been much more concerned, or amused.

Whichever.

Another puppy in the snow video! Woof woof.

Another day, another snowstorm, another puppy in the snow video.

I do believe this is what you skiers call freshies! First tracks in the powder. I thought I was going to lose him for sure.

Jojo the goldendoodle.

The grass is greener where you water it.

A quote by Neil Barringham. Made pretty by the people at the blog Are you Serious.

You can buy a postcard of it there :-)

This snow outside is quite high and I’m dreaming of spring and the smell of grass. But that’s not what this quote is about is it. I’m am in and out on here and on social media becasue I’ve been spending more time watering the grass at home ;-)
